You know that Windows offers so many icons to use them in folder. Everyone uses them. So, do something different from them. Today I am going to show you how a normal image (.png or .jpg or.gif) can be used as an icon so that you can make fool your friends.

You cannot set an image as your icon by browsing from change icon arena since your system will not shore that up. You have to convert your image in .ico format to be supported. Though there are so many web converters but you can make use of an offline tool which is known as Quick Any2ICO. This is the easiest converter and not yet so time spender.
